Seeking God?

All seekers are welcome at the Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  We want you to feel at home here at the Cathedral.  We hope this to be a place of hospitality for all, a refuge for the weary and the burdened.  Please come aside and rest a while to experience the peaceful silence of this sacred place and to step away from the busyness of life.  The cathedral is open all day, every day, from early in the morning to night time as a place of spiritual refuge.

We are here to share with you our joy and peace as we participate in the Christian faith, worship, life in Christ, and prayer as the People of God.  You may have questions about the Christian faith, or about what distinguishes the Catholic faith from protestantism, pre-Christian religions, and contemporary secular trends.  Please introduce yourself and ask away, don’t be shy!

Questions are an important part of getting to know who God is and learning to receive Him in faith, hope, and love.  Perhaps the best way to experience this is to participate in the Sacred Liturgy, to join us in divine worship – the Mass.  Please do not feel awkward if you are new and don’t understand what is going on.  It takes a life time to enter ever more deeply into the experience of Christian worship and prayer.  Mass schedules are on the home page of this website.  If you would like to talk to someone about the faith please introduce yourself to the priest after Mass.  If you would like to be part of a group of people who are inquiring into becoming Catholic, click here.
